Halloween Cuisine - My Dream Come True

Ever since Halloween was and I have liked to cook, I have wanted to create a Halloween themed meal. This year my teenagers and their friends arranged to have a few people over to trick or treat. I was so excited, I told them they could all come for dinner too. My main course consisted of Bloody Eyeballs and Worms. In the corner there you can see there were also some Bat Wings.
We also had White Maggots, Green Monster Brain Dip and Brown Swamp Dip.

There is Valerie, she was eating the Bat Wings. JUST KIDDING.

Bella the Princess stuck with the simpler looking Green Eyeballs and Orange Knobby Fingers.

There is the bowl of Dried Out Scabs we used for the dips.

Kiley and Rebekah we trying out the Yellow Witches Brew.

These were the Graveyard Cookies and Super Sweet Monster Eyeballs.

Here is everybody having dinner. They were all such GREAT kids. It made the evening so enjoyable. Everyone went trick or treating later and really brought home the loot. The younger crowd took umbrellas. The older crowd got soaking wet. But everyone had a lot of fun!

Lilly liked scattering Maggots everywhere. But what she REALLY liked was finding out about.......

She learned how to dig through everyone's candy and pick out those on a stick.

Pumpkin Carving!

We meant to go to the pumpkin patch and have "The Experience." Every weekend in October, however, seemed to rain - downpour rain. And during the week our lives were full of football, volleyball, soccer, piano, violin, church activities and late night Philly's baseball. Thursday night I sent Jim on a pumpkin run to find some pumpkins. They got these at the third grocery store they went to. Nic and Kiley were excited about having white pumpkins. Bella wanted to decorate her pumpkin with freckles and took the knife and stabbed it about 50 times on the face. Arielle loved the guts. Valerie was in bed an hour before this.....she has had too much early morning seminary and late night baseball watching with her dad.

Halloween School Parade

Here is the cute Butterfly that came to watch the parade. Here is the Zombie Fairy with her living friends.

This is the wild and crazy Ninja Warrior!

And here is Anne of Green Gables in her puffed sleeves.
